It's a new year, filled with optimism, but locked into the same routine. Had chemo today, reviewed lab numbers, did a little work and now home. Tomorrow is back to work and appointment with the kidney doc. I've been tired the past couple of days, which is only natural given the stem cell harvesting and treanda. But I don't like being so tired and it unfortunately heightens or re-engages my paranoia and worry. My numbers are pretty good, not a lot of change. So logically, I know I am doing better, but the mental aspect is tough. It can wear a person down.
Friday is more chemo, then I get a two week break, during which I should feel pretty good.
